This is an amazing photo essay about the return of soldiers' bodies to their loved ones. The second half, about the widow who is 5-1/2 months pregnant, nearly leveled me. If we're not already convinced, this -- along with the hundreds of thousands of lost Iraqi lives, and the hundreds of thousands of wounded U.S. soldiers and Iraqis -- is why every one of us must do everything we can to end this war at the earliest moment possible.
